About Halon - An Overview

Halons have been used for fire and explosion protection throughout the twentieth century. They are low-toxicity, chemically stable compounds that, as long as they remain contained in cylinders, are easily recyclable for reuse. Halon 1211 (a liquid steaming agent) and Halon 1301 (a gaseous agent) have been proven to be extremely effective fire suppressants, which leave no residue and are remarkably safe for human exposure. From protecting computer and communication rooms throughout the electronics industry, to numerous military applications on ships, aircraft and tanks, to ensuring safety on all commercial aircraft, Halon has been an integral part of the safety plans in many of today's manufacturing, electronic, and aviation companies.
